Angry Birds To Make 02/02/12
by Leslie Lyons
These Angry Birds balloons are versatile- make them yourself to use as party decorations OR let the kids make them and then hang them up for your party decorations! If they’re old enough, I’d let the kids make these.
A big shout out to thepartyanimal-blog.org for sharing these, including the template for making them! Unless they’re old enough to do it themselves, blow up the balloons for the kids. Print out the templates- 2 per child so they can make two. While thepartyanimal taped the printed pieces to the balloons, that might be harder for kids than glueing them on with glue sticks.
If you can find colored lunch bags, use these templates to create Angry Birds party favor bags.
These paper Angry Birds sprinkled all around your party venue and food table will be a super compliment to your Angry Birds balloon decorations. Just print them out (in color), fold and glue. Be aware- lots of ink here.
Craftsbyamanda.com has instructions for very cute Angry Birds made from cardboard paper towel tubes that the kids can make for themselves to use as pencil holders. To simplify everything for the kids, I’d recommend cutting the paper towel rolls down to size and painting them the Angry Birds colors ahead of time. I’d also make one of each for the kids to model. Let the kids use cut-up construction paper and markers for beaks, eyes, etc. Provide scissors and glue sticks and they’ll be happily busy for a good bit creating these Angry Birds. Of course, once the kids have finished, your 6 angry Birds models can then be repurposed as part of your birthday party decorations.
It’s very unusual to find a craft that can double as your party decorations once the kids have had the fun of making them. These Angry Birds are turning out to be a very workable party theme!
